As our community and nation follow the current health situation involving Coronavirus, we want to update you on Elder Care Services’ response and emergency needs. As a provider of vital services we are considering all options available to ensure that the seniors we serve do not miss the meals and in-home care they require to remain healthy. Under these efforts we remain fully operational for services provided directly to seniors in their homes. We have increased our home-delivered meal programs to serve more homebound seniors. In times of physical isolation, social connections are vital. Our Elder Call program has been expanded to call hundreds of seniors daily. The emergency food pantry operated out of our main office is still open and providing food and material aid to seniors in need.
Through our phone calls we have identified a number of material aid needs. If you would like to support local seniors with a material aid donation or financial gift, we have listed the most commonly requested items below. Financial gifts may also be used to support the increased number of meals delivered through Meals on Wheels or Elder Call.
Material aid requests:
If you would like to make a financial donation to support our expanded services and allow us to purchase items from the needs list, please do so here or by mailing a check to our main office.
Our adult day center, Elder Day Stay has been closed following “safer at home” protocols. We are continuously monitoring State Directives and health notices from the CDC. Please check our Facebook page for the most up to date information on our policies and Elder Day Stay operations.
Elder Care Services is the leading provider of community-based senior care. Since our founding in 1970 we have been driven by compassionate and generous community members. Each year, over 800 individuals give thousands of hours of service, from delivering Meals on Wheels, to providing companionship, to supporting events. Together, our community partners help us improve the quality of life for seniors and their caregivers.
Elder Care Services is hitting our own aging milestone this year- the 50th anniversary of when we opened the doors to serve local seniors.
